This is a typical sex exploitation film from the early 1930s - complete with wild parties, sex out of wedlock, lesbianism, etc. A chorus girl's exposure to the "casting couch" also exposes her to syphilis. Exploitation filmmakers hoped to capitalize on the taboo subjects of venereal disease, sex before marriage, lesbianism, etc. while skirting the Motion Picture Production Code of 1930 which forbade a film from containing such content. Films like this would tour the United States for...

Efforts being made by the National Tuberculosis Association in the war against tuberculosis, with many interesting scenes from the 1930s. Posing interesting and still relevant statistics linking poverty to the disease as well as surprising breakdowns on the racial demographics of tuberculosis victims, the film also includes fascinating footage of early sanitoria (treatment centers) and mobile health clinics.

This film was part of an effort by striking immigrant wool mill workers. Two of the seven reels from their efforts have been lost, however, "The Prologue", a dramatization about the lot of an immigrant family working in the mills, is complete. Production costs for the film were payed primarily by the American Communist Party. From the AFI/Thomas Brandon Collection at the Library of Congress, copied at 19fps from a 35mm print.
